"Man or Muppet" is a song from the film, The Muppets. It is sung by the two protagonists, Gary and Walter about their decisions of whether they are Muppets or men. This occurs after Mary dumps Gary for being too loyal to Walter.

It was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Original Song on January 24, 2012, making it the third song from a Muppet film to hold that position (the first two being "The Rainbow Connection" from The Muppet Movie and "The First Time It Happens" from The Great Muppet Caper) and won it on February 26, 2012 (being the first song from a Muppet film to hold that position).

Lyrics

Gary:
I reflect on my reflection
And I ask myself the question
What's the right direction, to go
I don't know

Am I a man or am I a Muppet

Gary (Reflection):
Am I a Muppet

Gary:
If I'm a Muppet then I'm a very manly Muppet

Gary (Reflection):
Very manly Muppet

Gary / Gary (Reflection):
Am I a Muppet (Muppet) or am I a man

Gary (Reflection):
Am I a man

Gary:
If I'm a man that makes me a Muppet of a man

Gary (Reflection):
A Muppet of a man

Walter:
I look into these eyes
and I don't recognize
The one I see inside
It's time for me to decide

Am I a man or am I a Muppet

Walter (Reflection):
Am I a Muppet

Walter:
If I'm a Muppet, well I'm a very manly Muppet

Walter (Reflection):
Very manly Muppet

Walter / Walter (Reflection):
Am I a Muppet (Muppet) or am I a man

Walter (Reflection):
Am I a man

Walter:
If I'm a man that makes me a Muppet of a man

Walter (Reflection):
A Muppet of a man

All:
Here I go again
I'm always running out of time
I think I've made up my mind
Now I understand, who I am

Gary:
I'm a Man!

Walter:
I'm a Muppet!

Walter (Reflection):
I'm a Muppet of a man!

Walter:
I'm a very manly Muppet

Gary:
I'm a Muppet-y man!

Both:
That's what I am
